BMI’s Brazil Defence & Security Report for Q1 2013 examines the current health and future prospects of
the country’s defence community, chiefly its armed forces and defence industry. So as to understand the
prospects and health of Brazil’s defence community, the report takes a multifaceted approach. It
examines the internal and external security challenges faced by the country, the modus operandi of
political defence decision-making, and how these decisions are transformed into military action. In
addition, it outlines the order of battle of the country’s armed forces, the respective sizes of the armed
forces, current defence procurement programmes and future anticipated acquisitions of military materiel.
Beyond this, the report also investigates Brazil’s growing defence industrial sector, particularly in the
realm of aerospace, and the impact that this defence industry could have in the domestic and international
The report makes several key findings. Firstly, it notes that the country has a long-term objective to
become a major player in the global defence industry; both in Latin America, and abroad. Secondly, it
notes that Brazil is playing an increasingly important role vis-à-vis security both domestically and across
the wider region. This includes its relationships with its neighbours and its participation in international
peacekeeping missions. Fourthly, the Brazilian defence establishment is wedded to a long-term
programme of defence modernisation. This is focused on the replacement of obsolete platforms and
capabilities with new domestically produced and imported equipment.
Long term, Brazil sees itself as a global player both in terms of defence materiel provision and in terms of
operational participation. This is a trend that is unlikely to change over the next decade.
Over the last quarter BMI has made some additions to the Brazil Defence & Security Report. These have
?? A detailed description of the chain of command of the Brazilian armed forces, and the country’s
grand strategy.
?? A full order of battle for the Brazilian army, air force and navy.
?? An update regarding the country’s defence budget for 2012.
?? A full description of the major procurement projects across the Brazilian army, air force and

    BMI View: Romania historically has under-spent on its defence requirements. The country has a wellestablished defence industry, and significantly faces regional security concerns which will encourage future defence spending trends. At the industrial level, its companies are working to establish relationships and to deepen cooperation regarding defence design, development and production. Meanwhile, the country's defence relationship with the United States is expanding. This is the result of the c......

    BMI View: Russia is engaged in a major military modernisation initiative. The country is investing heavily in its armed forces after several years of stagnation in the defence sector following the end of the Cold War. At the same time, the country is facing a number of security threats in the domestic, regional and international domains; a second factor which is also spurring the upsurge in defence spending. In addition, the country's defence manufacturers are enjoying increased demand for their......

    BMI View: We expect Australia's defence budget to continue increasing in absolute terms in the next five years. This will be driven by Australia's defence policy focused on becoming a key player in regional and international security, which will require an upgrading of both its navy and air force capacities. The government is looking to take advantage of the globalisation of the defence market to continue importing defence materiel whilst, simultaneously, facilitating Australian defence SMEs' ac......

    BMI View: We expect Taiwan's defence budget to remain stable at 2.2% of the GDP in the next five years as a result of financial constraints brought on by an economic downturn following the world's economic crisis. However, we note that the defence budget will continue to increase, albeit very slowly, in absolute terms, especially as cross-Strait tensions continue to increase following the pro-independence party's win during last November's local elections. Our view is that this is likely to open......

    BMI View: The UAE's local defence industry is still in the early stages of development, and as such, domestic companies rely heavily on assistance from foreign firms to manufacture sophisticated military equipment.
